Students have a sense of “agency” when they feel in control of things that happen around them; when they feel they can influence events. This is an important sense for learners to develop. They need to be active participants in their learning.
‘Two factors, in particular, help learners enable agency. The first is a personalized learning environment that supports and motivates each student to nurture his or her passions, make connections between different learning experiences and opportunities, and design their own learning projects and processes in collaboration with others.’ The future of education and skills Education 2030 OECD

In the era of digital transformation and with the advent of big data, digital literacy, and data literacy are becoming increasingly essential, as are physical health and mental well-being.’ The future of education and skills Education 2030 OECD
